Could you kindly go hijack an alternate thread for which you're qualified, know the owner, know the owner's car, history, etc.? thanks.
What a douche
No need to fear me unarmed-- I engineer automotive components for a living, have been driving M cars for half my life, do all my own work on all my cars, track regularly, and have been on car forums long to not let any of it hurt my feelings. Though I didn't realize how important the italics button was till this thread :P

To me, being impressed with this is liking being impressed by this X5 that went 60,000 miles without an oil change: Umm..Need Advice...VANOS job in progress after 40k on an oil change

Is it impressive the car was able to withstand that level of neglect without catastrophic failure? Absolutely!

Would I ever want to own that car? No way. Does it make me think positively of the owner? Nope.

Excellent question - as it was suggested that the metallic clicking noises I've been living with for years might be as a result of a dry CV joint.
Turns out the joint was still full of grease and the boot was perfect -

1st ride: What a difference (this from a 100,000 mile replacement unit from germanOnly). Smooth, no metallic clicking, tight shiftier, etc. I couldn't be happier.

Interesting part: My mechanic installed the entire shaft (giubo to CV joint) w/o removing or lowering the exhaust.
That's good to hear. Maybe it was the bad center support bearing causing the clicking sound.

So did you replace the cv joint as well? Sounds like you didn't since you don't hear the clicking anymore which makes me assume it's the original.

Good we're back on thread track post keyboard hero annoyance. Changed out the CSB and CV joint. No more sounds of any kind from the driveshaft....

Can you please go back to the hole where keyboard heroes crawl out of? What you 'think' is irrelevant - Thanks
